McDaniel Expresses Support for Homosexual Civil Unions

Little Rock, AR-Gunner DeLay, republican candidate for attorney general, today said his opponent’s public support of civil unions for homosexual couples comes as no surprise. DeLay pointed out that two weeks ago at a press conference in Fayetteville he contended the democratic ticket was not being honest with the voters about their support of the gay agenda. He asserted that McDaniel’s’ statements concerning civil unions only prove his point.

DeLay stated, “McDaniel finally showed us his true colors by being the only statewide candidate to openly support civil unions for homosexuals. It’s good to see him come out of the closet and reveal to the voters of Arkansas what he is all about. Although he says he supports the traditional definition of marriage, he clearly wants same sex unions to have the same legal status as a marriage between a man and a woman.”

DeLay said he knew McDaniel was hiding something when he refused to answer the Family Council candidate questionnaire. “Those questions are real easy to answer if you have traditional family values,” DeLay said. “The fact that he did not send in a response definitely sent up a red flag. It is obvious that he embraces the same philosophies as Howard Dean.”

DeLay cited Vermont’s Civil Union law that took effect in 2000, which Howard Dean signed into law as Governor of Vermont. The law gave same-sex couples in that state the ability to obtain a civil union license, allowing them to gain many of the same benefits, protections and responsibilities under Vermont law that are granted to spouses in a traditional marriage. Vermont's civil union legislation also provides child custody rights for gay and lesbian couples.

“It is obvious that Dustin is way out of step with the voters of Arkansas. I believe once he gets civil unions passed into law, the next step would be gay foster parents, and finally gay adoption. Arkansans need to wake up and see what is at stake in this election and send a message that they don’t want Howard Dean’s values in the attorney general’s office.”

Mark,

I know you are just schilling for the Repugs with this one. You are smarter than to suggest that the attorney general of Arkansas has any legislative writing or signing ability, so it doesn't matter what McDaniel, or Delay for that matter, thinks about civil unions. The attorney general, no matter who wins, will not affect homosexual unions, immigration, gay foster parents or any of the wedge issues that only seem to matter to you in even numbered years.

Hey, I know you are a homophobe but come on, Mark. This issue has already been decided by costitutional amendment, so it doesn't matter what any one person thinks about this issue anymore.

Rob, looks like your a Hunter S. Thompson wannabe, cool pic anyway. In light of your attitude that the AG has no say in the matter of civil unions, wouldn't you agree any elected official can promote a legislative agenda? If McDaniel did not support the issue, personally and politically, why make such an effort to promote it. McDaniel as if we all don't know is a Clinton wannabe, far, far out of that league, but he still trys none the less. He sues Remington Arms, says he just "did some research" finally says he did participate in the lawsuit. In this issue McD said "I have never personally done anything to infringe upon second amendment rights..." On the issue of tax payer funded scholarships, the issue of meth and on and on, our boy McDaniel just straight up can't give an honest answer. The issue of civil same sex unions, gay adoption and every element of the NGLTF agenda is driven by one party, the party of Howard Dean and Dustin "carry the water for Bebee" McDaniel. This is about the Dems making good on the promises they made before flip flopping on gay adoption, gay marriage...everything important to the homosexual community.

Homophobe? come on now Rob, no one is scared of homosexuals, it's just the fact a huge majority of Arkansans don't accept and never will accept homosexuality as a mainstream lifestyle. I invite you to go to any community in the state and ask the people, do you think men should have sex with other men? try it in a place like El Dorado, Texarkana, Fort Smith...outside of the Heights/Hillcrest Snyderville area and in Fayetteville you would find 99.9 percent of every citizen of this state is openly opposed on moral, spiritual and Biblical grounds against homosexuality, that's not being homophobic, it's called common sense.

Well said! Rob just TRIES to sound intelligent on topics he knows nothing about....which is just about all of them. He's just a pseudo-intellectual liberal who is, himself, carrying the water for the state Democratic party and every other spineless liberal in the state.

You call me spineless, yet YOU are afraid to even attach your name to your words. I have said before and will restate, yet again, that your bigotry will not be favored in the history books. Furthermore, I don't care what a majority of Arkansans believe on this topic because they are wrong. On a more personal note, I resent being called a Democrat because the Democrats, especially in Arkansas, are way too moderate for my taste. Arkansas is a strange state for political labels because most of the Democrats are more like Reagan Republicans and the Arkansas Republicans are more like Pat Robertson, crazy as a shit house rat.

I know it's a little too complicated for you, but remember that in Arkansas the Democrats are basically the same as national Republicans, whereas Arkansas Republicans are more like Pat Robertson (crazy as a shit house rat).

Rob I see I never gave my response to the substance of your point toward me. I failed to mention that this was a press release from the DeLay campaign and not my writing, but I agree with the thrust of the thing.

The AG can push their own legislative package. That is a part of having the officies separate. In Arkansas we are deliberalty set up so that the Governor is only a part of the Executive branch.

What's more, the AG can defend the law- half heartedly or wholeheartedly. I believe McDaniel would not defend our constitution well because he does not agree with the Marriage Amendent which bans so-called civil unions.

I am amazed at the power of the homosexual lobby, who can aggressively push the envelope and move to change 6,000 years of human civilization and then when traditional people react to it the gay lobby quickly gets in its "victims pose".
